The AMC and BBC co-produced mini-series will be based off of Le Carre’s 1993 espionage novel of the same name and follows an ex-soldier, Jonathan Pine (linked to Hiddleston), who after a series of unexpected events, goes undercover to catch an international criminal.
Even though we love him as a playful villain, we have no doubt the “Thor” star will add his charming flair to the hero as well. Plus, the whole internet is convinced he's a Disney Prince so all the more reason to fall in love with him.
Laurie, who hasn't returned to TV since "House," is reportedly booked to play Pine’s nemesis, a black-market dealer. If you are familiar with Le Carre’s other spy works (“Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy, “A Most Wanted Man”) we can expect a crazy labyrinth of scandals, paranoia and betrayal.
